broken trees, downed power lines and subsequent power outages...it was madness.
luckily, power was restored to my house earlier this morning but there are still thousands around the city that are still without it.
it's pretty easy to get caught up in the materialism that comes along with christmas - i literally spent the entire day saturday at the mall running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
perhaps this storm was sent as a way to slow us all down and remind us what's really important...
one thing i do know for sure - i'll take a snowstorm over an ice storm any day of the week.
happy (almost) christmas eve!
